As a photographer I love to capture honest expressions and tell the story of the person and/or group of individuals that I photograph. After a shoot I typically drive home thinking about the event and am excited to review all of the images. Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of capturing a Cooking Team Building event coordinated by Chef Lindsay Perkins of Lindsay Culinary LLC. This event was nothing short of exciting and fun. Lindsay thoughtfully coordinated the 150 person event for her client, Aetna Insurance. The attendees traveled from all parts of the country and started their night with a brief cocktail hour, all while Lindsay and her team strategically set up the event space with local ingredients for them to transform into their evening meals. No detail was forgotten, every place setting contained a recipe card, apron, and require cookware to complete the specific recipe.
Once the attendees entered into the event space it was fun to watch them find out what table they were going to sit at and what recipe they were going to create with their new found friends. However, before they started Lindsay had a surprise to kick off the event. She called up the Aetna executive team to a long banquet table, which displayed 10 mini cakes, piping bags filled with company colored frosting, and decorations. The executive board was then challenged to decorate their cakes, which would be voted on throughout the evening. Attendees were up on their feet, clapping, cheering, and taking video of the action. Needless to say I was thinking about all the fun images captured as I was driving home that night, and of course I had to download all of them and review before going to bed. Check out a few highlights from the evening and consider a Cooking Team Building event for your company.
